>>testimony on capitol hill today us ambassador to the european union gordon sondland testified for hours before the house intelligence committee in the latest public impeachment hearing comey lover now has the latest. >>a witness who both republicans and democrats say helps their case. i was acting in good faith. as a presidential appointee i followed the directions of the president. gordon summoned us ambassador to the european union testifying that there was a quid pro quo for ukraine to announce investigations into president trump's political opponents. mister giuliani demanded that ukrainep make a public statement announcing the investigations of the 2016 election. dnc
server and cory smythe. mister giuliani was expressing the desires of the president of the united states ambassador also saying the vice president the secretary of state and other top white house officials. we're all in the loop of what was going on with regards ukraine today's testimony. >>is among the most significant evidence today, republicans meanwhile highlighting what someone repeatedly told the committee. >>the trump never told him directly that security assistance was tied to the announcement of investigations any just said i want nothing i want nothing i want no quid pro quo president echoing this from the white house lawn i won nothing. >>that's what i want from ukraine that's >>in washington on comey lover now reporting. >>all right joining us now to weigh in on today's impeachment hearing is michael yaki him michael thank you for helping us with analysis of course ambassador sondland's testimony was highly anticipated because he had changed his testimony yeah,
yeah he days of today it would seem to give mixed messages again that both sides are using to their advantage i don't know if it's really a mixed message because if you're a court watcher, this sort of became the. >>ha moment in the trial where someone finally pointed the finger at the at the big boss and here. very clearly gordon sondland said this is orchestrated by the president along with his chief of staff along with the secretary of state of course, rudy giuliani. i think point where people are trying to look at is that sumlin sort of faltered a little bit toward the end when he was asked when they talk to him at all what did the president say the president know no whatever was and no quid pro courts are hard to say that now but when you look at the date of that we figure with that was that would the first of all the question was on property said. when you think that ukraine was no quid pro quo any worse to come from a good. i think what you saw today's evidence this is all evidence it's going to be woven into a narrative he saw some of that and i'm just come clean. concluding statements today
but there's a long way to go but this really is a was a big defining moment i think and amplifying what pam said both sides can take away something. >>the republican supporters to the rank and file trump supporters. there's probably not a big bombshell for them, democrats going to say aha like you pointed out and the polling and and the the senators and the in the in the republican senators right now we still don't see any big cracks in that support for trump the polling shifted very early on when the first one that actually the summer the transfer came out. >>i think it to look this percolate a little bit and but i mean let's be really honest is there going to be any change in the senate in terms of acquittal probably not. the question is is it going to be close and the closer it is the more uncertainty there is the worse it is for the president and his reelect and the worse it is for that for the republicans in the 2020 election that sort of where the game is being played right now because it's not going to be about can we get rid of this president because it's
not going to happen unless something really really becomes out in public opinion shifts like 20 points. >>impression about the role the giuliani, a former mayor of new york rudy giuliani is he's just like all over the place and his testimony for most of these witnesses for there's a difference between using american presidents have use private individuals for diplomacy jfk famously used. >>a journalist to help deal with the cuban missile crisis but here where you're talking about someone who was actually promoting the centrally a crime and i think the fbi and the southern district of new york are looking at this from the foreign corrupt practices act. i think rudy giuliani is in deep trouble. i'm from here. >>we're looking at there's a lot of other things percolating as well. we got the tax case that potentially before the us supreme court so let's presume that to the president gets through all of this with no republicans flipping sides. not out of the woods and you still got it. collection companies, he's he's certainly not out of
jeopardy and i think the biggest worry for him is he doesn't get reelected. the statue of limitations has run on a lot of these problems that he's facing with this with the tax returns for example, you look for look for money monday. a court is going to rule and don mcgann subpoena and if he rules in favor of the judiciary committee the floodgates could break and people like bolton pump pain others in terms of compelling them to testify real quick before. >>we go of course the democrats are debating right now those who are running for president that is sure the quick preview on what you think has to happen what will be interesting because it's against a backdrop of everything that happened this week but again you're people to judge and the question's going to be how many hits are people take on people to judge on his youth and inexperience because that can also backfire given the support that the democrats are looking for from the younger voters. all right michael yaki. thank you as always appreciate all right, let's check in with lawrence and get a weather update. >>guys mostly clear out there right now around the bay area is going to be a cold night.
